Welcome to our All Star Tutorial monthly blog hop for the Sand & Sea Suite!
I received an amazing fun fold card from Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardner earlier this month. When I messaged them to thank them, I said it was the most “wowest” card I have ever seen! Seriously…this thing is incredible. (Click here to check it out.) And so of course as an addict to fun fold cards and math, I just had to recreate it (in a slightly more simplified version) and share it with all of you.
So a few hours ago I shared live on YouTube step-by-step directions for creating my version of this card using products from the Sand & Sea Suite: Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, the Seaside Seashells Dies, the Seashells Embossing Folder, the Opal Rounds, and the Sand & Sea Designer Paper. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements (sorry there are no metric measurements this time), close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
